Our faces are the first things people see. Facial contours can tell people a lot about you. Youthfulness, vibrancy, and confidence are all things people see in your face as soon as they meet you. These features can be beneficial in both personal and professional interactions.
In the past, plastic surgery has been the most common way to enhance your facial features. However, injectable treatments offer effective and less-invasive ways to enhance your features and turn back the clock when it comes to facial aging.
Facial contouring can be performed in many different ways, depending on the treatment areas. One of the most common methods for facial contouring is dermal fillers. These fillers can be used to create volume, minimize facial asymmetries, and reduce lines and wrinkles. Fillers like Juvederm contain hyaluronic acid, are perfect for plumping lips and filling in wrinkles and lines. Other dermal fillers, like Radiesse, work to increase the body’s production of collagen, are excellent in treating volume loss, which can come with aging.
Fillers can be combined with other injectables like Botox, which temporarily freeze the muscle, allowing wrinkles to smooth. Botox can also reduce enlarged jaw muscles, which softens and can feminize a squared jaw. It can also be used to lift the brows and drooping mouth corners. Kybella, an injectable treatment that dissolves small pockets of fat, is most commonly used to treat a double chin. Energy devices like Ultherapy, which provide a subtle lift to the face and neck. When used in combination, these non-surgical treatments provide amazing and natural-looking results.
The options are seemingly endless when it comes to injectable treatments. The best way to know what will work for you is to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of the highly-trained nurse practitioners/nurse injectors at The Skin Care Center at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery.
